Love it!

Nice!  It looks like you have somewhere interesting to drive it.

My youngest daughter can teach you how to drive it.
Here, she's teaching her niece.....

It's been a little while but I thought I'd add that I put a 2.5" lift on the Jeep (springs). The 20 YO springs were getting flat and would bottom out. I've been taking it out, and my wife has seen the "advantages" of getting to places without having to hike.  :-)

Where's the wine rack ?
Right next to the gun rack ?
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

As she is now with the lift and the 33's. The "spot" is along the West Branch of the Feather River, about 45 min from my house.

*update*

Added a 1 1/4" body lift and a Teralow 4:1 kit to the transfer case. Now I have true 4:1 ratio 4 wheel low= crawler gears. The original box was only 2.5 :1  not good for boulders which is allot of where I go.

This is a BAD section into Morris Lake, very steep. Some of the trail is almost this rough, but doable.

Not my pic, btw.

*update*

Thanks; it's very much appreciated when one updates everybody, as some of us remain curious for a very long time.

There's somebody else here, for example, who was restoring a boat, but it's been years and years since he's said anything about it.

That was probably me, but it turned out to more than I want to deal with. I'll probably dispose of the hull, keeping the trailer and outboard to sell.

Added a 12000 Lb winch to the front bumper. It's a Harbor freight unit but got very good reviews.

It probably slid down the rocks.  Boats don't do well off-road ;)

The wife and I went camping overnight. Took the Jeep into the High Lakes (Ca.) and made it past the "staircase".  This is a shot after I came through, the guys behind me needed a spotter.

Maybe he sank?
